I have recently been diagonsed with Hypertonic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy.
I am scared to death the more research that I do. I am takig Toprol XL. The doctor started me at 25mg and wants to increase me to aroung 200 mg. I hate the way it makes me feel. I am already tired enough. I am 41 years old and have been living on caffeine for years to stay awake all day. I feel dizzy and lightheaded a lot lately. I work 40 hrs a week and can't imagine keeping up at this pace. The doctor wants me to exercise, but I am so tired.
I need to know what the life expectency is and what kind of questions that I need to be asking. Am I going to be able to continue working? I am feeling depressed and confused.
